Zero Boys "Vicious Circle" (25th Anniversary)
The long awaited re-issue of 1982's "Vicious Circle" from Indianapolis-based Zero Boys. Unlike most coast punk of the time, the Zero Boys were pointing the way to a scene that could accommodate heaping helpings of melody, intelligence, and rock 'n roll suss, not just turbo-charged ferocity. When the Ramones lost it, the Zero Boys found it - adding a slam brigade fist to the blitzkrieg beat. They managed to come up with one of the best early 80s punk records. "Vicious Circle" has been remastered from the original tapes. Liner notes by Jack Rabid. Between this and "History Of", the entire recorded output of this legendary Midwest punk band's original line up is finally collected.
